[Vm-dev] why would a unix vm try to load libasound when the commando line is either squeak -help or squeak -vm-sound-null?

Well, it wasn't my fault, apparently. The linux x64 packages on squeak.org that use the 5.3 VM - which appears to be every one from the 5.3 release package up to the latest on in files (http://files.squeak.org/6.0alpha/Squeak6.0alpha-20582-64bit/Squeak6.0alpha-20582-64bit-202003021730-Linux.zip) have this long list of ldd output.

I have a copy of the 202101260417 package (which I accidentally spotted in the not at all easy to spot releases page of the github site) and that does not have the issue. Thus I must guess that some make related problem had crept into the system and subsequently got solved.

The two versions can be retrieved and checked from 
... should any one be interested in the palaeontology of it.
